Intrigued by the Genshin Impact reputation system? The Genshin Impact 1.1 update arrives on November 11, bringing with it a plethora of new characters, story content and more. Ahead of this, miHoYo has finally broken down what its new reputation system looks like, and how to reap its rewards. Here's a rundown of the changes and additions the new reputation system will bring.
What exactly is the Genshin Impact reputation system?
According miHoYo, the reputation system will be linked to the in-game cities and NPCs. By interacting with NPCs, players can unlock new quality-of-life items, requests, and other rewards such as crafting blueprints, name cards, and new features within cities.
How to unlock the reputation system
Like other features in Genshin Impact, the city reputation system is locked behind an Adventure Rank level. For travelers who have been playing religiously, unlocking city reputation quests should be automatic, as those players are likely above Adventure Rank 25 already.
In Mondstadt, players must reach Adventure Rank 25 and complete the Archon quest ''The Outlander Who Caught the Wind' Prologue: Act I' . This quest arises early on in the game—within the first few hours.
After unlocking the reputation system, talk to the Knights of Favonius Coordinator, Hertha, to check in on what rewards, requests and more are available.
To unlock Liyue's city reputation system, the player must reach Adventure Rank 25 and complete the Archon quest ''Farewell, Archaic Lord' Chapter I: Act II'. This quest appears at the beginning of the story chapter in Liyue Harbor.
After unlocking Liyue's city reputation system, check in with Ministry of Civil Affairs Secretary, Ms. Yu, in Liyue Harbor.
How to quickly earn reputation points in Genshin Impact
There are four different ways to increase your reputation in Genshin Impact:
Region Quests: Complete various quests around each city and earn reputation points. At this time, it does not appear these quests will be limited to within city bounds, but rather cover each region of Mondstadt and Liyue.
Weekly Bounties: Each week within each city, completing three different bounty hunts will increase reputation points and rank. These bounties will refresh each Monday.
Exploration: For players who love exploring the world of Teyvat, this will likely be the way to increase reputation rank most rapidly. Each chest unlocked, waypoint visited, and every elemental oculi gathers will contribute to ranking up reputation in each city.
Weekly Requests: Similar to bounties, three different requests can be completed for reputation points every week within each city. These requests will also refresh on Mondays.
The rewards for Mondstadt's city reputation ranks are as follows:
